In enacting the archetypal roles of Elijah, Izdubar and Philemon in various theater presentations, I would first experience dissociative and schizoid states of mind. When I could relate these mental states to the ongoing processes of transformation that was happening to Jung, the schizoid isolation was broken. Each of these figures was seeking liberation through the connection with Jung in order to be transformed and partially integrated into a new vision of human psyche. While playing the roles and subjecting myself to the dialogue with Jung, I could let these figures became more human and more related inside of myself. I became aware that each one of them played a crucial part in Jung’s individuation process to create the fundamental tenants of analytical psychology.
